Teen review: Princess Diaries

Princess In Pink
by Meg Cabot
256 pages
Series: The Princess Diaries, Volume 5
Recommended for grades 7 and up

Reviewed by Kayla, grade 10

To refresh your memory, Mia is a 16-year-old girl who is mostly normal except for the fact that she is the heir to a small country by the name of Genovia. This year, Mia’s boyfriend, Michael, is a senior so Mia hopes to go to prom with him. However, it seems as if Michael will not want to go to prom. It is also Mia’s birthday soon and she is extremely excited. Will everything go as planned or will Mia have bad luck yet again?

This book was a little slower than the others have been; however, it still had some humor and some nail-biting parts. I really like the way that Meg Cabot writes, as she usually uses a diary or journal format. This enhances the book, in my opinion, because what the character is actually thinking is seen as opposed to what he or she just says to other characters.

I rate this book as a 4 out of 5.

Princess in Training

Mia is starting another year of high school. This year she is running for student body president! Or at least, her best friend Lilly is running in her name...  Mia doesn’t want to run for president, and things just get better (sarcasm) when Grandmere steps in to help. However, Mia has bigger problems. Geometry is just as hard as Algebra 1 was, and even though it’s her best subject, she’s getting bad grades in English.

I liked this book much better than the last one. It was more gripping and fascinating. Mia often turns awful situations into humorous ones. This is a great book for a teenage girl who is most likely having similar troubles to what Mia has. I highly recommend this book, as it is a perfect example of Meg Cabot and her writing ability.

I rate this book as a 5 out of 5.
